Has anyone seen the completely stupid and utterly sexist commercial for One a Day Teen Advantage vitamins? It starts out by informing us that teen boys and teen girls come from "two different planets." Then, we learn that there's a boy's formula and a girl's formula, of course cleverly identified by blue and pink boxes. The vitamins are designed to cater to the specific "health concerns" of teen boys and girls, meaning One a Day Teen Advantage for Him supports his "healthy muscle function," and One a Day Teen Advantage for Her helps her "healthy skin."
Because all teen girls care about is looking good, while all teen boys want to be body-builders. Thanks for looking out for us, One a Day.
